The 2013 Costume Institute Gala gave celebrities license to unleash with their fashion thanks to the exhibit “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” on display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for the event.
Though some in attendance kept their looks a little conservative, others took full advantage of the opportunity. One of those taking full advantage was pop punk fashionista Madonna, who looked like a pinuptastic dominatrix executive in a gray plaid Givenchy jacket with black bob hairdo, no pants, fishnet from neck to toe, thigh-high panty hose, black gloves, and an incredible array of metal accessories including studs, chains and crosses. The 54-year-old singer finished off the look with bright red lipstick and a deadly pair of pink Casadei heels.
Ladies with an attitude
Fellows that were in the mood
Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it
Strike a pose,there’s nothing to it
How about a zoomed in look? Get your scrollin’ finger ready boys and girls!
And just in case you were curious, here’s a little abou the 2013 MET “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibit from their website:
The Met’s spring 2013 Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, will examine punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the early 1970s through its continuing influence today. Featuring approximately one hundred designs for men and women, the exhibition will include original punk garments and recent, directional fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk’s visual symbols.
Focusing on the relationship between the punk concept of “do-it-yourself” and the couture concept of “made-to-measure,” the seven galleries will be organized around the materials, techniques, and embellishments associated with the anti-establishment style. Themes will include New York and London, which will tell punk’s origin story as a tale of two cities, followed by Clothes for Heroes and four manifestations of the D.I.Y. aesthetic—Hardware, Bricolage, Graffiti and Agitprop, and Destroy.
Presented as an immersive multimedia, multisensory experience, the clothes will be animated with period music videos and soundscaping audio techniques.
And one last parting shot of Madonna at the 2013 MET Gala:
